    Thanks for the invite Sassie Lassie! I will be there with bells on! I might bring a table to display my wares and I will be giving away a Custom Holster It may be one I have in stock (something common like a 1911) or it may be choice, we'll see.

    Now, to decide what to bring for food ... Burgundy Mushrooms??? There may be a fungus among us.

    Awesome, Big Leather! As always, there is plenty of room for you to set up a table. I would love to see your wares as I just purchased the
    S & W Bodyguard in both the .38 Revolver and the Semi-Auto .380. I need to be accessorised.

    I am sure there are plenty of people that will love your fungus.

    We always have a great time.

    Let's see -- sassielassie, Brokensprocket, you, and me and my rider.

    I think that adds up to a hundred or so - give or take a few.

    Unhappy Can't Make This One....

    I hope there are hundreds of people attending. Hope to make the next one!

    What a great day! Beautiful weather, met lots of great people, had State Represetatives speak (I really enjoy listening to Dean Johnson). Couldn't have asked for anything better.

    Thanks to all of you who helped put this together.

    It was a good picnic. I loved how Rep. Dean Knudson brought on a standing ovation for the wife of Sen. Dan Kapanke.

    I saw a couple of people walking around snapping pics, not sure who they were. I was too busy the whole time chatting it up and what not. I feel bad I didn't take time to get a few.
